Arsenal suffer HUGE injury damage as Thomas Partey is withdrawn from Ghana’s friendly against Brazil… and Takehiro Tomiyasu leaves the Japan squad due to ‘club circumstances’ ahead of the north London derby

  • Arsenal have suffered a major blow ahead of the north London derby next week
  • Midfielder Thomas Partey was pulled from Ghana’s game against Brazil
  • Partey was originally scheduled to start before becoming unwell and being removed
  • Takehiro Tomiyasu has withdrawn from the Japan squad due to “club-related circumstances”.

Arsenal have been dealt a major blow ahead of the north London derby next week after Thomas Partey picked up an injury on international duty.

The Ghana midfielder has become a fixture of Mikel Arteta’s side this season, with the Gunners unbeaten in every game he has been a part of.

However, Arteta may need to develop a new strategy when his side host Tottenham – as he now faces two potential absentees from the game as full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu withdraws from the Japan squad.

Partey was in Ghana’s starting XI for Friday night’s game against Brazil before retiring just minutes before kick-off. The midfielder claimed to have felt a little uncomfortable during the warm-up and was then removed.

The Ghana Football Association is yet to confirm the extent of Partey’s injury and he has yet to withdraw from the national squad.

The midfielder has struggled with injuries over the past year and has already missed three of the Gunners’ Premier League games this season.

Meanwhile, full-back Tomiyasu has withdrawn from the Japan squad for “club reasons”.

An injury is not mentioned in an official statement from the Japan Football Association. The 23-year-old defender is expected to rejoin the Arsenal squad in London Colney this week.

Arteta’s side host their London rivals in the Emirates next Saturday in a clash that will see the winner sit top of the Premier League.
